The Beneath the Surface Summer Reading Program for teens is underway at all hometown libraries. Get ready to explore all manner of things that are below ground, underwater, or a secret.

There are several touring programs throughout the 3 county area for teens. If you miss one, you can catch it at another library. See the complete schedule of touring programs at justsoyouknow.us/srp2013
